Jason Falkner, with The 88, Lincoln Barr & Patrick Porter of Red Jacket Mine. Triple Door, 216 Union St., 838-4333. 7:30 p.m. $12. All ages. In 1988, then-20-year-old singer-guitarist Jason Falkner joined the final incarnation of The Three O'Clock - the jangly stalwarts of L.A.'s "Paisley Underground" scene - thus launching an eclectic career that's delivered some killer power-pop and roots-pop while not quite making him a household name. Falkner's been a member of Jellyfish and the Grays, and recorded and/or toured with Paul McCartney, Beck, and Air, but it's his long-running solo career with which he's made the most of his rich, pleasing tenor and uncanny ability to craft memorable melodies. Over the past decade he's made some waves with two volumes of lullaby versions of Beatles songs. These days, Falkner is touring behind his terrific 2009 album All Quiet on the Noise Floor.
